Yupp they're testing it at the moment with 2/3 speed - and it already runs through the complete track! Awesome, nothing more to say. Can't imagine how great it will be at full speed.

So...on the one hand, the final speed isn`t reached yet...BUT : The track lengh of the first hill and the first inversion is huge...in my experince you realize the real speed of a coaster when you ride it...the big ones often look slower from the outside than they are.
Well, we`ll see...

And somehow unbelievable that the park still calls it a "Family-Coaster".

So if this video is showing the train going in 2/3 of the real speed, why can't anyone, that know some video editing, increase the speed of it about 50% and then you would have an instant video that shows the real speed.

Hi Beany (Welcome...!)...
Well, the flight to Basel (the next Airport) won`t be expensive, so if you`ll find the time...see us in Germany !!!
